My American Experience 

 

Art: Orin Carpenter

Juried by Lauren Palmor, Ph.D

Poetry: Cruwys Brown

March 9 – April 30, 2021
 

Artist Roundtable Discussion on Zoom
with Cruwys Brown:
Recording coming soon.  

America claims to be the land of the free, a country where dreams are nurtured and allowed to come true. It professes to welcome the immigrant and anyone seeking a better life.

But the experience of America to the individual living here is as broad as the country is big. Current events bring to light how far the myth is from reality for many within our borders. Yet some fortunate people do experience the abundance and opportunities available here.

We invited artists to share their uniquely American Experiences. Freedom of expression is still one of the sacred promises of the Founding Fathers. This show intends to encourage and honor that freedom through art.

1. Our common flag bears its own silent witness
2. Bent by memory
3. This promised land
4. Eight minutes and forty-nine seconds

5. You are the young wonder-tree, grown out of ruins. Baronga–African Folk Tale

6. Gather what you can to bring out its lone song

7. Oh friend, do you not love that color can create?
8. Where do you come from?
9. Out from darkness hums our most amazing tune

10. What region of the earth is not full of our calamities? –Virgil

11. At dusk the metamorphosis began, the still slight light
11. If you turn away, turn back, look again, again

Sincere thanks to our juror Lauren Palmor, Ph.D.
